Pilgrim of The Way

Buffeted some days

Pilgrim in this foreign land…


Have I none, but of The Way

Soul is ardent follower—

The Shepherd leads me

Onward, places undefined…

Faith, trust built stronger

With every step, mile we gain

His Presence ever remains

Battle For the Soul

It’s not trivial

Frequent morbid pull of Death

Battle for the soul

But powerful is Spirit

Of God who ne’er abandons
